Life's lessons

Today was a great day. I was able to teach my class and it was standing room only. We had a good time, and I am always grateful that the ladies are so forgiving of my mistakes that I make. It is almost a common thing for me to make a few mistakes each project...then the fun part is trying to create something from that mistake, even if it is only a good reminder to them...of what not to do! :)  Sometimes I actually have fun trying to create something from those mistakes ...just so I don't have to waste the material. But we have fun and that is really what matters!

Tonight when I got home and started checking my email, I received a sad letter from a dear friend. She said that she and her family had lost their home 2 weeks ago, from a fire. Even through all of this, she was still counting her blessings...like that her family was all safe. What an incredible lady she is. I have always wondered what you would do if you lost everything, how do you handle a trial like that? Then I realized from this friend, that you remind yourself of the blessings that you still have...your family and your health.
I do know that life will be hard, I can't even comprehend what she and her sweet family are going through, but I do know that I can pray for them. And that is what I will do. Also I can remember more often my blessings that really count...my family, my friends, my health and my faith.
Good night dear friends!

Prayer is the most wonderful, most intimate gift one can give another. It's all you and god, with that person on your heart.

P.S. I loved your mistake. It turned out real cute... Just goes to show you that things always turn out for the best. Hugs!
